I’ve got Video Game Music Stuck in my Head: Super Mario Bros. 2 – Overworld Theme

Every now and then, a certain song will come along and get stuck in my head. Tonight, it’s the little ditty above from Super Mario Bros. 2.

Nothing warms my heart up more than the overworld theme from Super Mario Bros. 2, in fact, I consider it to be one of the best Super Mario Bros. themes. There are two layers here that fit together to create one of the most uplifting video game themes I’ve ever heard. Though at first, you might listen to its main jingle, I always catch myself listening for that bad ass bass line.

As a bonus, I’ve included this ragtime version as sight-read by Tom Brier.

    so I decided to get a WiiU in a few months when i have some money saved up/ Cause im pretty sure the kid is gonna be a gamer kid, and there no better games to start on then Nintendo

    • MF_Parko

      Very cool, and yeah, I’d bet money on the kid being a gamer! Nintendo has a lot stuff ready for reveal at E3, so it ma soon be time for me to start saving, as well.

      If you do get one, you’re welcome to write and publish Wii U reviews here, if that’s something you’d be interested in doing.

      • Shane C Gardner

        yeah for sure. Prob be a few months away thou. Any other kind of things I can write for ya? lol

        • MF_Parko

          Yeah, that’s fine, whenever you get it, it would be cool to feature some Wii U content.

          If you want, take a look through the retro reviews I have posted, and if you want to review something that’s not there, go ahead. Retro reviews don’t have to be Nintendo, they could be anything from or before the Gamecube/Xbox/PS2 era. Retro reviews are rated out of 5, and includes a concluding paragraph. Here’s the review scale: http://www.minifortress.com/review-scale/

          If you get a chance to write something up, send it to parko(at)minifortress.com

            I shall try Silent Hill for Ps1/PSN

          • MF_Parko

            That’s a good place to start, I can even link to it in the Silent Hill: Shattered Memories review.

            Cool, I’m excited to see what you come up with. I can get some screens and stuff ready in the meantime.

          • Shane C Gardner

            i’ll have it for you in a few days. In the middle of switching apartments, plus im playing through the first hr or so again since i havent played it in like a decade lol

          • MF_Parko

            No rush, send it over when you feel it’s ready.

          • Shane C Gardner

            can do. also i just found out my micorsoft office expired and im not paying $150 to renew it lol. so i may do it in note pad. and put a number nx to each paragraph just in case the format messes up. so u may have to do some editing lol

          • MF_Parko

            Nah, that’s fine besides, looks like you’ve done a good job breaking it up which makes it quite easy. If you’re looking for a free office program, try Open Office.

            Will have a look in a bit, will try to get some screenshots for it today, as well.

          • Shane C Gardner

            cool beans jean. let me know what you think

        • MF_Parko

          Also, you could also review Wii games that we don’t have posted, if you want. I know you have a couple of Wii games that I don’t own. Modern games are rated out of 10, check out the review scale for the descriptions.
